Brother Andrew,

I am in some kind of mental state where it is diffucult for me to want to focus on hard work. I saw my doctor yesterday and he thinks it is a norepinephrine deficiency. So we are working on that. I suffer from depression. It has been so since I was a child. After our first son was born I hit rock bottom and that is the first time I sought medical help. After receiving that help, I realized that it was the first time in my life that I had experienced any relief from the plague of depression. So, it is an ongoing battle and medicines must be adjusted now and then. So, I also talk with Josf and I have to think hard to talk with him and I have not been talking to him. I think I have to think hard to talk with you, and so I must be avoiding the topics. We go beyond chit chat or easy off the top of the head answers.

I read your reply after you wrote it and I did not take any of your words as if they needed any forgiveness. I put of replying and put of replying. I think it is my medication.

Today is a beautiful sunny day and I need to work in the yard and all I want to do is sleep. I am so tired.

But I want to answer this off of the top of my head because Scripture immediately came as I read it:

"Dear sister and friend, please pray that God will forgive me, and that he will root pride, disrespect, and judgment out of my heart, transforming me by imparting the "more excellent way" of humility and charity."

Andrew, I do not pray and ask God to forgive people. I practice I John 1:9. "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. I confess my sins to God and he forgives me. If I have wronged another person, I also ask them to forgive me. But when I sin, it is agaist heaven. When David sinned he said he had sinned against God and God alone.

So, Andrew, I have no unforgivenss toward you and you can go directly to God and ask Him for forgiveness. Andrew, we have a Great High Priest who has passed into the heaven. He intercedes on our behalf. specifically vs 13 thru 16.

Now, my doc has cut my meds in half and I can bearly keep my eyes open so I am going to sleep now.
